I am amazed by the Kool-Aid-drinkers who support this healthcare mandate, which is causing more problems for the majority than solving problems for the minority it was meant to serve.

Many cite the low number of doctors per 1,000 citizens, but doctors and medical students cite the increased cost of medical school and regulations that force them to accept payments less than the cost of services rendered. Some doctors are opting out of Obamacare, so the problem will get worse.

Those adversely affecting medical care in the U.S. are the insurance companies, attorneys and politicians. Whenever government gets involved in daily operations of any industry, it becomes more costly and less efficient.

Now with a socialist mandate, what’s to happen to all the charitable and tax-subsidized medical facilities.

When does a bureaucrat know what’s best for a private citizen?
